Did you have it send him the update for deletion?

This is expected behavior from Outlook. If you are the Meeting Organizer, you can cancel the meeting and then send the cancellation notice to all attendees (notifying them of such) but the attendees retain the option to have the meeting itself removed from their Calendars or not. You can't remove the meeting from their Calendars via the cancellation process.

Ok got it.  I am sending them invitations.  Right now there are two calendar appointments for the same meeting-one at 10am and one at 10:30am.
both user1 and user2 are not able to delete the 10:30am appt.

Well you have to send them the correction. When they accept the new meeting time it will delete the old time and create the new one.
